Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Anyone have plans? I need to and will be driving to get a glimpse of totality. driving tentatively to Nebraska depending on cloud cover.

A better question, how many have y'all witnessed?

DO you remember your first? Have you ever scene an eclipse outside your country?

AA (Stock/Bond/Cash ): 96.5/0/3.5% MIX (Small/Mid/Large): 25/25/50% BLEND(US/Foreign): 100/0%, REIT (Real Estate Equity): ~50% of Assets

FIRE in 2031 @ 50yrs old (+/- 2yrs) w/ a hypothetical $2.5mil portfolio, 3 appreciated homes worth $1.0mil and rental income to fund my gap years until RMD. Assets will go to an inherited IRA where I plan on watching the investments grow until I die or the trust gets executed.
